Posted by John on 2013/1/22 11:00:00 (287 reads) News by the same author

U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) announced that Chris Chinn (Clarence, Mo.), has been selected as one of the winners of its Faces of Farming & Ranching program. This nationwide search was launched by USFRA in June 2012 as a way to identify farmers and ranchers who are proud of what they do and are eager to share their stories.

Chinn and three other program winners were selected from a pool of more than 100 farmer and rancher applicants from across the country. As one
of the Faces of Farming & Ranching, Chinn will share her stories and experiences on a national stage to help answer consumers' questions
about how food is grown and raised.

Chinn and her husband, Kevin, are fifth generation farmers - farming with his parents and brother. They raise 1,500 pigs on their farm, and
60 head of cattle in addition to growing corn, soybeans, hay and rye.

As a Faces of Farming & Ranching winner, Chinn will receive a $10,000 stipend to help offset the time she will spend away from the farm in the
coming year serving as a USFRA spokesperson. She will also have the opportunity to direct a $5,000 donation to an agriculture-related charity.

From Nov. 15 - Dec. 15, 2012, thousands visited www.fooddialogues.com to learn more about the candidates and to vote for whom they believed best
represented American agriculture. In addition to the public vote, a panel of judges from throughout the food and agriculture community
interviewed and evaluated the finalists to help determine the winners of Faces of Farming & Ranching. Winners were announced January 22, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. CT during a live-streamed broadcast, followed by a media teleconference. The other three winners include Will Gilmer (Sulligent, Ala.), Katie Pratt (Dixon,
Ill.) and Bo Stone (Rowland, N.C.). For more information on the Faces of Farming & Ranching program, visit www.fooddialogues.com.
